Are labor contractions ALWAYS painful???

Or is it possible to have regular and steady contractions that don't hurt?

ps....I posted this in pregnancy too but didn't get much of a response...thought maybe I would here! ;o) Thanks!

  • No they are not always painful and if you practice Lamaze or some other breathing techniques they don't have to hurt at all. You can breathe to lift your diaphram up off the uterus and stay in control of any pain that might come. I've had 3 kids so I'm sharing my experience not just feeding you b.s.

  • They are always painful but supposedly if you have the right breathing techniques it can make contractions very bearable. As for me...yeah lol.
